Rolando Politi a.k.a. Kappo Kappino is on a mission: to help people see the beauty in things discarded, namely trash. And recently, he’s been focused on one specific kind of trash: the bottle cap, mostly plastic. Since they’re made of a different type of plastic than the containers they seal, most recycling centers don’t take ‘em. What to do? Use ‘em as art supplies, of course. That’s exactly what Rolando did at La Plaza Cultural, a neighborhood park in the East Village, NYC. After hurricane Irene downed one of the park’s trees, Rolando and the local kids made a new one – out of bottle caps! Watch the video here, and get down with Freedom for the Kappini!
